Spellcast is a 5 reel 20 payline online slots game from NetEnt, taking inspiration from the ever-popular themes of witches, wizards, and magic.
Look and Feel
Spellcast has, as players might expect from a NetEnt online slots property, good quality graphics and an engaging, spooky soundtrack.
The dripping water and creaking doors sound effects give the feeling of being in a creepy old castle, and the stylized artwork of the reels and background, while a little basic, certainly evokes the traditional high fantasy imagery of magical battles.
The alphanumeric lower value symbols are picked out in gold, while higher value symbols are a magic wand, a spell book, a glowing golden potion, a witch at her cauldron, and a creepy magical castle. The scatter symbols is a crystal ball, and the Wild is a mysterious wizard.
Spellcast has a slightly dated looking interface that does not feature arrow-based selectors and so may be slightly more difficult for mobile players, though it is still very clear and simple.
Bets are controlled through the “Bet Level,” “Bet Lines,” “Max Bet” and “Coin Value” buttons, though you will need to click through each one individually to select what you want.
Max bets are available, but autoplay must be selected through the small icons on the bottom left of the screen.
There are four bet levels selectable. Minimum coin value is 0.02, with a maximum of 0.50, and the minimum bet per spin for a single line is 2p. The maximum possible bet per spin is £40.
Spellcast has a fairly standard array of bonus features, with a generous fifteen free spins being triggered by three or more scatter symbols occurring on the reels.
Wins on free spins round will also secure a 3x multiplier.
The wizard wild can substitute for any symbol in the game except the scatter symbol, and he also brings with him a 2x multiplier on all wins that combine the wild with at least one other symbol, and this holds true even in bonus rounds.
All in all, Spellcast may not be the flashiest, innovative, or most exciting NetEnt release, but it is an engaging, rewarding game that promises good returns in play.
